Language spoken among a few of the Imraguen of Mauritania, today by about 800 individuals, in Banc d'Arguin (south of Nouadhibou).
The language is unclassified and uniqe to Mauritania. It is mixture of Hassaniya Arabic based upon the Azer dialect of Soninke.
The number of Imraguen speakers is decreasing, and the language seems likely to disappear within few decades.
